      It hurt...

...so much             


...to believe...                       

....that you had died.


 It hurt even more...

...to learn that you made....

...the choice


...to not tell us otherwise...

Until someone told you it was the best thing for you...

 ...for you...                       

...what about me...?    

  ...where was I...?

...Oh yes, thinking you were gone...


...Too much has happened...

...too little was said...


...the curtain has fallen...


...the casket's been d







...I'm sorry...


...I can't bring myself to love again...


...that which I've buried so long ago...

    I like the flow and feel of this one a lot, as well as the barely provided details that make this at once attainable and mysterious. Ciao, T/S Scholar

    The way you laid out the poem carried the words all the farther not that they wouldnt have gone far on their own. Very well done friend.

    Man, it's tough. To get through something like that intact, and remain a functional and contributional human being. It should never be a choice. It should never be so bad that there is actually belief that there IS a choice. I'm sorry.
